Bible Notes

"How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!" (Ps. 36:7)—The Hebrew word "yaqar" (excellent) has the primary meaning of "precious" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 429), while the term "chesed" (loving-kindness), which is rendered "mercy" in verse 5, also means "goodness, kindness, loveliness" (ibid., p. 338). In verse 7, Moffatt reads: "How precious is thy love, O God;" Smith: "How precious is thy goodness;" and Kent: "How precious is thy lovingkindness."

"The children of men put their trust under the shadow of they wings" (Ps. 36:7)—The verb rendered "put their trust" means properly "seek refuge" (Brown, etc., op. cit., p. 340). Hence, Smith has: "The children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings;" and Moffatt: "To thee men come for shelter in the shadow of thy wings."
